What is the rear floor length required for vehicles serving the needs of the funeral industry?

This is a question we often get asked by our friends in the motor industry.
The most popular answer we receive from our friends in the funeral industry would be "2,25m"(However, this length can vary according to various applications, personal preferences, preferred configurations and other factors.)

To the motor industry in SA...If we can offer a suggestion when selling/renting / leasing vehicles for the service of the funeral industry it would be this:

Why is it called a "hearse?"

Hearse was originally spelled herse, coming to English from French herse. It entered English in the late 13th century. It is thought to come from Latin hirpex "large rake used as a harrow". A harrow is a sort of plough which is used, after the land has been furrowed, in order to break up clods, remove weeds, etc. It is made of a frame of timber into which teeth or tines are set. Apparently, the original hearses resembled the "harrow" herse, hence the name.

Before the automobile became widely popular, funeral processions in the U.S. were led either on foot or by horse-and-carriage. Most funeral homes had a dedicated funeral hearse, elaborately decorated for a respectful procession to the church. or graveyard.
The historical photograph (by the Library of Congress) shows a horse-drawn hearse and it's driver outside Neil Regan Funeral Home in Pennsylvania, around 1900. The horse is fitted out with a decorative caparison, a type of cape, for the solemn occasion. In South Africa today, we have funeral parlours offering this historically respected service.

If you would like to add a horse drawn hearse to your fleet, kindly contact Otto at Hedo on 082 551 4042
